    As a beginning bass player, I like to use methods with different scales, exercises, and arpeggios. They are essential to playing bass. This method includes daily warm-ups, right and left hand exercises, and exercises for stretching fingers (which is important with the bass), stamina, and speed. It uses standard...

    notes and tabs. The skills range from easy to more difficult, so this method is applicable to beginners as well as advanced players. It is well recommended.
